Sony Mobile has announced that the Xperia TL (LT30at) will be heading to the United States in the not too distant future as the official Bond Phone. We first heard of the Sony Xperia TL at the end of August and at the time speculated that it might by the AT&T version of the Xperia T (LT30p). Well we were spot on, the Xperia TL is identical to the Xperia T apart from the fact that it will support LTE. The Xperia TL is also expected to have a metallic rear cover compared to the plastic cover of the Xperia T.
The other specs remain the same – the Xperia TL will come with a 4.6-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, 13MP camera, 1080p video recording, 720p front-facing camera, NFC (including one SmartTag in the box) and MHL. The handset will also come preloaded with some James Bond Skyfall content (behind the scenes footage, interviews, clips, wallpapers and ring tones) as seen with the Xperia T. The handset will launch with Android 4.0.4 ICS and will be upgraded to 4.1 Jelly Bean “following launch”.
